Paul Rudd Fangirls Out Over One Direction in New SNL Promo

12/05/2013 at 11:00 AM EST

Just because Paul Rudd isn't a tween girl doesn't mean he can't be One Direction's No. 1 fan.

In a set of promos for this week's Saturday Night Live, third-time host Paul Rudd and cast member Vanessa Bayer (rightly!) freak out over musical guest One Direction. When Rudd realizes that the "band with the hot British guys" – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – will actually be in the studio with him, he completely loses his cool and politely muffles his screams with a pillow.

The engaging clips also feature Rudd reviving his beloved Wet Hot American Summer schtick, billing himself as the "sixth lead in 200 Cigarettes" and briefly mentioning his role in the upcoming Anchorman 2. If the final show ends up being as funny as the promos, we're in for a treat on Saturday night.
